St. John Vianney Parish Community believes that the prevention of child sexual abuse begins with each person. Increased awareness and a willingness to take action are steps for every person to take to eradicate abuse in our society, in the community, in the neighborhood, and in the family.
Everyone who ministers (clergy, staff and volunteers) in the Diocese of Oakland is to be educated about the nature of child sexual abuse, how it is perpetrated, how to report it and strategies for prevention. Training is mandatory for all who minister, first before starting work or volunteering and then every 3 years thereafter.

Let’s do all we can to safeguard our children, teens and youth by working to prevent abuse and make our Church campus and neighborhood a safe zone for children with Zero Tolerance Policy.
